Description
• Released in 1984, the movie Breakdance - or Breakin’, as it was named in the States - celebrated the rise of ‘b-boy’ culture, based around breakdancing and hip-hop.
• The film was a huge box office hit in the USA, grossing over $6 million on its opening weekend. For many outside of the US, it was the first time they were able to see ‘breakers’ or ‘b-boys’ (as they were known in the States) in action.
• The soundtrack to Breakdance, originally on Polydor Records, proved equally influential and successful, helping to spread the word about the development of black urban dance throughout the world.
• The album went on to sell over a million copies, fuelled by key tracks such as ‘Breakin’ … There’s No Stopping Us’ by Ollie And Jerry (a UK hit) and ‘Ain’t Nobody’ by Rufus & Chaka Khan (a global smash).
• Such was its success that a sequel, Breakdance 2 - Electric Boogaloo, followed, with another impressive soundtrack.
• This is the first time that either soundtrack has been reissued on CD in the UK; now remastered from the original tapes.
